Currently, the Juve are the only untouched team in this season Series A. After 14 league fixtures, Turin giants are clearly 8 points ahead of second-placed Napoli.
So far, with 13 convincing victories, Juve conceded only a single defeat against Man U in Champions League and a Serie A draw against Genoa. Juve has only dropped two points in the league table, which is a record start for Italian Serie A.
Juventus have just considered 8 goals while scoring 31 times in opponent’s net in. Serie A. So, Injury issues are not bothering the Juve while they have the best defence and attacking force in the squad.
It’s our duty to inform you that Juventus’s Andrea Barzagli, Sami Khedira and Alex Sandro are all sidelined through their respective injuries. But Emre Can have returned to full training and could feature tonight as a substitute.
On the other hand, nothing too much is going for Inter Milan. They only managed to earn a single victory in their last five outings, including Champions League games as well.
Although the Nerazzurri are considering as the best team to fight down the dominance of Juventus, the actual situation is a lot tougher for them. With 9 wins and 2 draws and 3 defeats, Inter is standing 3rd on the table and clearly 11 points behind from the table-topper Juventus.
Despite the fact, Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri isn’t underestimating Luciano Spalletti’s men at all. Allegri has labelled this showdown the “game of the year” and praised Inter’s quality.
Luciano Spalletti will be without Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan and full-back Dalbert due to different injuries, though first-choice right-back Sime Vrsaljko could potentially return to the side tonight.
